After curative resection of EGC, the recurrence rate of the index cancer is quite low. For the 5 years after the ESD, it is less than 1 percent including extragastric recurrenes and local recurrences. However, metachronous cancer is a big problem. Metachronous cancer is usually 1-2%/year. In addition, metachronous adenoma is additionally 1-3%/year .

After 5 years of ESD, the rate of follow-up loss is high. Without regular screening endoscopy, metachronous cancer is a real threat to the patient.

In this case, ESD for EGC was done as usual, and the follow up was done up to 5 years.

After 5 years, the patient was lost to follow-up. Eleven years after the endoscopic treatment of EGC, a large cancer was found in the proximal stomach. Initial CT scan showed multiple lymph node and hepatic metastasis.

After ESD for EGC, yearly follow-up EGD should be recommended at least until the upper age limit of screening.
